Young people must grow up with the correct attitude of freedom, convinced that, "...a person is more precious for what one is than for what one has..."
By giving young people the opportunity to receive correct information and learn how to live by their values, we are enabling them to make the right choices and become responsible and respectful individuals
...Developing young people of Integrity, Service and Good Character - Responsible community members and Leaders of Today and Tomorrow.
Dare to be Different...Say NO to Negative Peer Influence!!!
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed young people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

Capacity Development

The Capacity development program was designed to promote SRH related life skills among young people whom we can not reach. These indirect beneficiaries can only get information from our project clients. As such, the Capacity development program enables us to equip our direct beneficiaries with information, so that thy can reach beyond our primary target population. There are 3 projects under the Capacity Development Program :  Basic counselling, Leadership development as well as facilitation techniques training through the TOT project (Training of Trainers). After undergoing intensive training, these individuals are able to disseminate comprehensive and accurate SRH information.

Projects under the Capacity Development Program

The TOT project is aimed at enhancing peer education among young people. Project clients usually go through this training after the Education for life - Behaviour Change Program. This ensures that they are able to facilitate discussions and disseminate comprehensive and accurate information in their communities.

Leadership development workshops are aimed at developing and enhancing leadership capabilities among young people, especially Club members. The program is meant to ensure continuity of clubs as well as strengthen club led project initiatives. The Leadership workshop is a 2 day programme that targets current and potential leaders so that they contribute positively for the sustainability of formal and informal groups they lead. 

A 3 day workshop aimed at inculcating and/or sharpening basic counselling skills in the participants. The programme primarily targets peer educators, youth leaders and adults working with young people. After attending this workshop, project clients will be in a position to help other students to acquire psychological and emotional management skills.
